Called into to see how Chris was going with his S1 Esprit rebuild - 99% done. Looks a million bucks - well maybe $100k.

Yes that's all very good but how is it as a submarine?

Looks awesome.
Any interior shots? Wondered if he stayed with original tartan or went black etc.

No tartan. Original wasn't tartan either. He's gone with a dark interior. New 70's orange carpet though. Re-upholstered seats look great - sorry no pics though. Best i can do is this shot showing the darker interior.

That's awesome.

Surely these will hike in value soon?

It must be a fairly late s1 model? Mine is an early s1 and has completely different mirrors and aerial position. I know they made running changes but have never seen either of those items like that. They clearly just made stuff up on the go!
